We Take Coffee Seriously

I feel obligated to tell guests that the residents of MidCoast Maine and Camden Maine rise with the sun and set with the sun. This is an important thing to know if you will be vacationing here. The locals have figured out that the landscape of land and sea is fantastic in the morning.The ocean is home to marine creatures and the mountain is the perfect nesting place for many feathered friends. In addition to the wildlife that is obvious in Camden Maine, the crew of the historic sailing ships in Camden harbor starts work at the crack of dawn. The sun rises from the east and if you sit on one of the benches down on the landing, you can enjoy the start of a beautiful day watching the sun rise. Camden Maine, Rise with the Sun Vacation Ideas.
